Your best bet is to sand the area with a fine-grain sandpaper and then apply another coat of paint. In the future, it’s always better to take the time to paint a lot of thin coats than it is a few thicker coats. You’ll reduce the likelihood of drips and keep the entire surface looking great. Remember: paint only hides color, not texture.
